SPD health politician Carl Lauterbach gives another reason to recommend a second vaccine “under any circumstances” four weeks later, and a different approach “makes more sense” from an epidemiological point of view: many early astrogenic second vaccines postpone first vaccinations behind other citizens. This reduces the safety of the final vaccine, explaining that “this is not a benefit for mutations in the fall”. Lotterback On Twitter.
